The Musanian lands, often simply called "Musograd", were originally settled by Balanda tribes. Historic evidence of these tocharic / germanic speaking nomadic tribes appears about 1500 years b.p.. The Balanda languages today are used mostly in the Balanda and Capricornian back country. Slavic speaking Musan tribes settled the central plains in the 11th century. At about the same time, Murwillumbah was settled by Jewish traders, which were largely islamized in the 13th century during the Southern Invasions, forming the unique Murwillian culture in the following centuries. The latin speaking inhabitants of the Naquarnian peninsula were also pushed back from the coastal regions during these times.
The Musogradian or Musanian language developed out of the interaction between the proto-Musan (slavic), Balanda (tocharic) and Murwillian (germano-semitic) languages, with some Eetalijan influences. It used to be written in Cyrillic letters, but today in most regions of the Federation, Latin letters are used. The Dershowo Musograd uses both types of letters officially.
The English language was adopted by the multiethnic trading port of Kosnice in the late 14th century before it came under the rule of the Musogradian Kingdom. Today it has spread to the Capricornian coast and is also widely used in other provinces. It is the sole official language in the Republic of Capricornia, which, after leaving the Federation of Musograd in 2006, has become co-founder of the Federated Micronations.
In the southern Repubblika tal' Naquarnia, Eetalijan has regained its position as the most widely spoken language in the last few years, surpassing coastal English on the western and Murwillian/Arabic on the eastern coastline of the country. Written in latin letters, it has absorbed many words from those two languages. This process has been actively supported by the government to foster national unity.
Due to the current political situation, several versions of historic events may exist. Here, the most generally recognized version will be given. Due to the historic development and population distribution, the history of Musograd plays the major role in this representation.
